With these chilly weeks lately in the Midwest, many homeowners feel cold air inside their home as well. They are noticing drafts and cold pockets, and areas like their kitchen cabinets feel cold. If you notice this, now is the time to take action to make your home more comfortable.
Benefits of Insulation
Adding or upgrading your insulation under your Bloomington roofing helps keep your home warmer. This also means that your furnace and appliances will run less – saving you money in the long run. Finding and sealing any air leaks and adding proper ventilation is equally important. If you aren’t sure what your home’s current situation is with insulation, call your local insulation contractor and ask for an inspection. Many contractors will provide and free inspection with recommended upgrades.
Installing energy efficient windows can also help make a difference. If you notice a temperature change when walking by windows, consider new windows or energy efficient options. Although this can be a pricey upgrade, you will be satisfied with the warmth in your home.
Sealing and insulating your home’s duct system can improve the overall energy efficiency. Do you have a programmable thermostat? Take advantage of that and set it to run a few degrees lower during the day while at work and during the night hours. The small changes can make all the difference in the long run.
